Bellfield (Old Portobello Parish Church)

Door open days

29 September 2019 (13:00 - 17:00)

Edinburgh

After the first successful urban community right to buy campaign, Action Porty reopened the former Portobello Old Parish Church in June 2018 as Bellfield, a new community hub for Portobello just steps from the sea. Constructed in 1809 to designs by William Sibbald, the former church has been a special site of community activity for over two centuries, as a place to celebrate and mourn, and to meet, dance and play.

 

GLOBAL CONNECTIONS

As a former church, Bellfield has gravestones tied to the Scottish diaspora and memorials dedicated to local residents who fought and fell in wars abroad.

 

ACTIVITIES

At 15:00 there will be a talk on the community right to buy process and how Bellfield has developed over two years of community ownership.

At 16:00 a heritage walk led by Portobello Heritage Trust will depart from Bellfield.

We will also be hosting a café by donation and information tables for the various classes, workshops and activities offered at Bellfield.
